2021 Telarus Partner Summit
With 960 attendees, the 2021 Telarus Partner Summit event filled the Marriott San Diego Marina Hotel with our sales partners, staff, and leading suppliers of cybersecurity, cloud, unified communications, contact center, IoT, and mobility solutions. After the crazy year of 2020, our theme this year was Survive, Overcome, and Thrive. Attendees shared their experiences by writing on a community graffiti wall expressing how they've been managing or thriving in their life and business endeavors. Our special opening keynote included Alison Levine who has ascended the highest peaks on every continent and also skied to both the North and South Poles. Our closing keynote was John O'Leary, a burn victim that has thrived despite physical and emotional challenges. For our annual technology reveal, Telarus launched Telarus University, a new learning management system that will enable our partners to get certified to sell more of certain communication technologies. Partners earned points throughout the event for attending meetings and participating in challenges, which were redeemable in our on-site swag store for awesome gear. This event continues to be the leading industry event for carefully organized networking, filled with quality education and fun! Watch our event videos below.
2021 Partner Summit is now Race to the Summit – Season 3
That’s a wrap! Season 3 of Race to the Summit has come to an end. Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic caused our regional learning events and even our annual Partner Summit to shut down. However, we were determined to continue to arm our partners with knowledge and know-how from the safety of their homes. In this season of Race to the Summit, we allowed participants to earn points by watching videos, selling a deal, or interacting with a supplier. The prize for the partner with the most points made? A choice of $25,000 cash OR a 3-year lease on a fully loaded Model 3 Tesla.
2019 Telarus Partner Summit
2019 took us to a brand new Gaylord Rockies luxury resort and convention center near beautiful Denver, CO. The theme was Topgun, where the best came to learn new sales tactics and become more dangerous to their competition. Attendees experienced a casino night, educational courses, a newly revealed Back Office and Loyalty Program, one-on-one meetings, fun activities, and more. The founder of TopGun Dan Pedersen shared fun memories and signed books while Captain Charlie Plumb, a naval pilot and POW for 6 years, closed out the event with a heart-wrenching and inspirational story.
